The Strangest Conversation, haiku by Joshua Eric Williams
“Joshua Eric Williams knows about Basho’s ‘to know the pine is to be the pine.’ And when poets also allow themselves to be watched, in order to render, there is further insight. Render means ‘make’ and also to ‘cause to become.’ Enter this book, and live inside each haiku, as long as you dare, it’s worth the risk!”
— Alan Summers
“The Strangest Conversation takes us to the heart of living and to the edge-work reaches of our universe. When you read the haiku in this collection you will breathe deeper and with a peace and recognition that these are poems you have been waiting to read. There are revelations and currents of connectivity throughout this collection. This is a ‘conversation’ you will continue to have.”
— Tom Clausen
midnight rain on the needles of pines the briefest stars a night’s silent accumulations — white lies morning’s petrichor the shushing leaves I am
